That's a huge leap - that misses by a mile, IMO. The developer needs
to know details of the _format_ of the map data. The format does not
necessarily tell one _anything_ about the _quality_ of a particular

the developer may be expected to pass that along to the user in some
What you just implied, Bob, is that if I create some horrendously
